Cucumbers are some of my favorite summer side dishes.  They are so inexpensive all summer long that it’s hard to pass them up at the farmer’s market.  Cukes are also very refreshing as a cold side dish on a hot summer evening.  For years I’ve been making a cucumber salad with sour cream, but it’s not a favorite of my husband.   So I decided to play around with a vinaigrette style dressing to see how that would go over.  My husband ate three servings so I’d say it was a hit.

There are no exact measurements.  Just use as much or little as you’d like to taste and experiment with other types of vinegar and oils to change up the taste.

  5. Add oil and pepper and toss to coat. Add more salt if needed.

  1. SO Simple! Growing up, my mom used to make a similar salad, but it also had tomatoes and red onion in it!

  1. [...] Be careful when lifting the bird off the can as the chicken will be falling part.  It usually takes two of us to remove the can. You may want to let it cool a bit before attempting to remove the can.  Cut the chicken up and serve! We like to eat ours with ranch potatoes and cucumber salad. [...]
